A little longer--

I will also be offline for the week after Easter--I have been having problems with vitreous detachment after a spectacular ocular migraine, and my eyes do not want to look at screens for very long. Have a wonderful Easter, those who have been waiting for the day through Lent. And to all, "Love one another."


  1. May you soon be well again.....all best wishes from a revived and redirected pilgrim at a revived and redirected Beyond Eastrod. Happy Easter.

  2. Oh, dear, do rest those precious eyes. All good wishes for your health, and for a happy Easter!

  3. Starting to feel better. Was seasick and nauseous from giant new floaters and the flashes. Thanks for the wishes.


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
